I use to work at Subway. Vegetables were kept in a walk-in cooler. Each morning before shift, we would use the slicer to prepare the fresh veggies, like cucumber slices.

Slices were kept in a stainless steel container covered with plastic wrap in the refrigerator until time for shift to begin. Also, the food bar portion of Subway is temperature controlled with vegs and meats cold and meatballs, etc. kept hot. They were very careful about this in light of keeping the food safe to consume.

I'd ziplock bag the whole cuke and keep in ice water until ready to slice off what you need, then return to ziplock bag, not place into water. Remember how limp they can become in pickling water? Good luck, and God bless. : )
